In 1942 Walt Disney made this short film for the U.S. War Production Board (a now-defunct agency of the federal government during WWII). It stresses the importance of saving waste fats, which are made into explosives, for the war effort.

The war sometimes means moving families into cramped quarters that make adequate play space hard to find. The war takes away fathers and makes mothers find extra work outside the home. In time of war it takes thought and careful planing by parents to see that children's needs are met as well as conditions will allow." Digitized by Central University...
